Spaceship handling
« on: May 21, 2013, 09:27:08 pm »

Hi, im new to Outerra and loving the shit out of the engine. i'm also new to moddeling. but i managed to convert some basic spaceships including textures.
the problem is i have no knowledge of scripting and would really apreciate it if someone could help me with it or could hook me up with a vehicle handling.
i think it would be really amazing to fly arround with a ship like this

Right now anything that wants to fly must have a flight dynamics model implemented in JSBSim, which may not be viable for something like this. It will be possible to implement a custom physics later, that should work by generating whatever forces you want there to get that thing moving. Or even to position and rotate the object in a custom way, although that would make it harder to interact with collisions.

Anyway, without a usable flight dynamics model the movement may feel fake. Needs something like a generic auto-stabilizing thruster or anti-gravity based physics model. Or something.

Looks great.

Working on clouds, we need some for other projects outside of Anteworld, depends on how much time will be left and how it will go. But we don't want to release anything in Anteworld before it's up to standard, cos' reputation ;)

Hi it's probably a wrong material in material library file (*.matlib) can you send it to us or the whole package?
